Seismic Cloak Could Protect Your House, But Your Neighbors Won’t Be Happy

When someone starts talking about cloaking devices and technology, I immediately reference the Romulan tech of Star Trek. However, when it comes to earthquakes, scientists are working on a way to cloak entire structures from tremors.

Aëdle VK-1 Headphones: Limited Numbers But Look Promising

I do love listening to music through earphones and headphones. I can remember that once I was in a jam when my single pair broke, so these days I have multiple pairs on hand, just to make sure that this never happens again.

The French Cover for iPad: More Moleskine than Moleskine

Ever since book-inspired iPad covers first appeared, there have been more and more available, including some directly from Moleskine. Personally, I like my iPad covers to do just two things: protect my iPad and double as a stand. If I’m lucky, there’s a keyboard. While it doesn’t have a keyboard, the French Cover looks pretty nice and it’s handmade in France.

Tour de France logo

Run of the mill last stage of the Tour de France, with no attacks from the favorites, it was all up to the stage win, that finally went to Cavendish, as he out-accelerated everyone to win the stage and to win the Green Jersey.

Pierre Rolland wins the White Jersey by 46″ over Rein Taaramae, and Samuel Sanchez gets the Polka Dot Jersey. The most aggressive rider of this year’s tour is Jérémie Roy, who spent over 800km in breakaways.
